Recycling organic waste

A look at an agro-ecological practice


J. Paillat, S. Houot, H. Jarousseau, H. Saint-Macary

Edition 2016

The recycling of organic waste can be considered an agro-ecological practice which enhances soil fertility, reduces environmental impacts and promotes a circular economy. This book gives readers insight into the bio-geochemical processes involved in recycling organic waste and the products derived therefrom. It offers solutions for various social, economic and cultural contexts, North and South.

Recyclage de déchets organiques en agriculture

Recycling of organic waste in agriculture

Agronomic and environmental effects of spreading waste


S. Houot, M. Pons, M. Pradel , A. Tibi

Edition 2016

This work presents an overview of resources and the use of fertilisers derived from waste in France, and provides key insights into how they can replace mineral fertilisers. It focuses on the agronomic, environmental and socio-economic impact of waste expansion and highlights how difficult it is to quantitatively assess the advantages and disadvantages of using these materials.

Agriculture and Greenhouse Gases

Ten Actions to Reduce Emissions


S. Pellerin, L. Bamière, L. Pardon

Edition 2015

Agriculture in France accounts for approximately 20% of all greenhouse gas emissions. This book suggests ten actions or agricultural practices to reduce them without substantial change to production systems nor a significant reduction in production. An estimated mitigation potential for each one in tonnes CO2 equivalent avoided and the associated costs or savings in euros are given for 2030.

Crop Diversification

Crop Diversification

Removing the Agronomic and Economic Obstacles


A. Messéan, J. Meynard

Edition 2014

In a context where the resources continue to simplify and where the rotations are increasingly short, crop diversification seems essential to reduce the use of agricultural inputs, especially pesticides. This work analyses the main obstacles to crop diversification at the level of the agricultural industries and farms. It suggests ways of shaking up highly-specialised productive schemes and creating new ones.

Fertilisation and Environment

Fertilisation and Environment

What Paths for Decision-making?


S. Pellerin, F. Butler, C. Guiard-Van Laethem

Edition 2014

Soil fertility is at the crossroads of the challenges of food security, environmental protection and economic profitability of the agricultural activity. This book presents the results of a long-term reflection on the context of fertilisation in the next five to ten years. It defines the needs in terms of methods and tools for managing biogeochemical cycles and integrating fertilisation into agriculture.
